Thanks, Rob. Strict regime in the office these days. Internet activity must be work related. Friday afternoon's about the only time I get to poke my head in the forum cos the commissar goes home early!
Good to see you and the lads are still on quality control!

Must give the album a listen and mull over Hunter's lyric before I can venture an opinion. 'The Black Rats of London' sounds inviting though!

I agree. Black rats is the best cut I heard so far. And yes forumites it features the dreaded ----- squeeze box. I also think the tune works well live

Man I was really diggin it as I was reading the lyrics, I was also having a REALLY hard time thinking " how in the HELL could you put this to music?" Then I listened to it and realized.....oh....you can't. GREAT poetry to me and maybe it could eventually evolve into something better musically. But it sounded pretty contrived to me. I think the lyrics or whatever the hell you want to call it is great though. The basic premise strikes a deep nerve with me as Hunter stuff is often wont to do......I certainly remember days gone by when the raise of a hand seemed enough to rule my world.....and the wind was always at my back.......And even now as I am writing this the lyrics are stuck in my head. Maybe it'll grow on me.
